Women's Advocate


Advocate Header


The women's advocate provides referrals on issues such as sexual assault, domestic violence, anger management, suicide prevention, depression, pregnancy, separation and divorce, and stress. The role of the women's advocate is to listen and support, to provide information, to refer women to appropriate resources and to follow up in a confidential manner.

With ongoing activism and involvement in their union, workplaces and communities, these women will bring experience and support to the members of Unifor 2002.
